Travellers' Choice
A beachfront gem honored by Travel + Leisure as one of the best hotels in the world, The Betsy anchors the quiet end of iconic Ocean Drive — and has one of the most exciting neighborhoods in America as its backyard. Inside, you’ll discover everything you’d expect from a luxury boutique hotel - 130 rooms and suites with relaxed tropical interiors, a Courtyard and Rooftop Pool, Two Eateries, a Library, Beach Access, Sunrise Yoga on the Skyline Deck, and a Fitness Center with Peloton Bikes. And some things you might not, like a beloved gathering place for arts and culture, a curated arts program ranging from poetry readings to nightly live jazz, a royal welcome for four-legged friends, and the individual attention of a family-owned hotel.

My friend and I had a suite. Living room with sunny balcony, bedroom with balcony over looking private courtyard. Beautifully appointed bathroom. Lots of vintage and eclectic furnishings, very nicely decorated in a sophisticated way. A TV in each room including the bathroom. The place is two vintage hotels joined together. All loaded with art. It felt like a 1940's hotel. The lobby has the feeling of old world elegance. The staff couldn't be nicer and more accomodating. Then there is the restaurant, LT Steakhouse...OMG. We loved the food. We ate most of our meals there. So wonderful. Step out front onto the expansive veranda and you are right on Ocean Drive. Lots of seating for drinks, meals, or just lounging. Ocean Drive is closed to traffic so it is a great place to just hang out.

Hotel's Favourite
Amazing hospitality from the start. What a crew at the Betsy! Warmly greeted and waved farewell by Juan, efficiently checked in and out by Chris, served drinks and dinner with class by Mikaela, delivered breakfast with grace by Barbara, and taken on a detailed tour in style by Paul! I was mesmerized by the artist theme and enjoyed the photography, poetry and jazz. The easy access to the beach including longe chairs and towels was priceless. The room was clean, cozy and quiet. The location was superb and enjoyed strolling down Ocean Drive and Collins. Can’t wait to come back and grateful to have discovered this special place! Thank you for a fantastic experience.

Art Basel time in Miami Beach is the busiest week of the year. Hotel prices, including this one, rival NYC or London. Nuts. But, biting the bullet we reserved a basic room. It was terrific; not large but not too small either with a nice bathroom, again, not large but with a great shower. Everything was top quality including the service at the desk, at the bar, at the restaurant, and even at the valet. Despite the fact that they were packed, morning till night, the breakfast was excellent and there was nothing to complain about. The two pools, one on the roof deck, were terrific. i'd stay again. Pricing not during Art Basel is likely a lot more reasonable.

The Betsy is a classic hotel with a warm inviting design. The staff projects a genuine feeling of care and friendliness which made our stay particularly pleasant. In particular, Enrique, Joanny, and Monica of the restaurant staff were kind and thoughtful. Their attitude added to our enjoyment of the delicious and varied food. Fritz was readily available in the lobby to help with whatever we needed and to answer our questions. We had a delightful stay and would be eager to return.

This is one of the loveliest hotels I've ever stayed at! So charming and stylish with the most intoxicating tropical feel. Grand piano in the lobby with someone playing jazz in the evenings. Right opposite the beach and a short walk to some lovely bars and restaurants. We were looked after by the lovely Fritzner - a kind and caring man at the concierge. Would love to stay here again if we ever make the long trip back from Australia.

The Betsy hotel is simply delightful from the ambience of the hotel to the professional warmth of the hotel staff to the charm of the piano playing each evening. The hotel is perfectly located on Miami Beach with direct access to the promenade and beach service. The LT restaurant offers a delicious breakfast on the patio or inside. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They also have an amazing art collection! I highly recommend their suite and they have a library if you need a quiet space for work calls.

Breen wrote a review Nov 2022
London, United Kingdom
The Betsy is a unique hotel that truly feels independent, especially given its position on the row of historic art deco hotels on Ocean Drive - many of which are run by large chains. Our double room was lovely, and the rest of the hotel (despite feeling like a maze given its status as two cleverly combined historic buildings) was outfitted beautifully with a hint of luxury; it’s a hotel which feels like it’s benefitted from a very personal touch in its design. The staff were great: notably Esra, Fritzner, Manish & the gentleman from Yorkshire (name escapes me mate, sorry!). Of course I include Betsy & Rosa in this list! However, the highlight for us was morning yoga on the rooftop - and we are certainly not usually people who you will find exercising at dawn when on holiday! My only very minor gripes are: 1. Included breakfast should include a vegan substitute for meat as standard imo. Staff did usually offer, but it should just be a third option on the menu. 2. No cushions for the loungers by the pool. This is likely given that we stayed during a period of inclement weather, but if I can see that the hotel next door offer them then it’d be nice to have available. I will definitely back, given the opportunity.

My husband and I joined a large group of friends who regularly stay at The Betsy. What a wonderful experience...the hotel is smaller in size and the staff really gets to know you. To me, consistent good customer service is first and foremost and obviously the General Manager has ensured that the staff has been trained well. Everyone at The Betsy from the Front Door, Front Desk, Concierge, Restaurant Staff, Housekeeping all are smiling, friendly and ready to ensure you are having a great stay. Not only that, they seem to really be enjoying themselves. The artwork throughout the hotel paired with the Jazz musicians playing most nights make the hotel experience special and separates it from all the others . We loved our time there and Hendrik, Paul, Manish, Chris, Betsy and Rosa....keep up the great work and we will see you next year! PS: Don't miss the Boucher Burger!
